The Starbucks Christmas red cup has gotten a serious makeover for 2018


"We listened to our customers, ' said Roz Brewer, Starbucks" chief operating officer, according to CNN Business.

She said customers "loved the tradition of Christmas". "The holidays mean something different to everyone", the company said in an ad showing two women gazing at each other over a cup of coffee.

And, as usual, you can do your holiday gift shopping at Starbucks, which is selling sparkly cold cups and colorful mugs.

This year's holiday cup designs are giving people (the Christmas-loving ones anyway) what they want with multiple with red stripes, one with a green argyle pattern, one with red-and-white flames, and one with mistletoe-like coffee cherries in red and green.

'The holidays mean something different to everyone, ' the Starbucks ad proclaimed a year ago.

'We learn from everything we do in our stores, ' Brewer said.

We'll start with that reusable cup initiative, which is the main reason why we're putting out this story that has a holiday flair out before Remembrance Day, something we typically try to avoid.

This year, the company is strictly sticking with Christmas. The reusable cups can be brought back into the store until January 7 to receive $0.50 off your drink order.

There are also seasonal steamers and hot chocolate, like the Caramel Brulée Crème, Gingerbread Crème, and the Peppermint White Hot Chocolate.

If you can't make it on November 2, 2018 for the FREE reusable Red Cup, you can purchase them at Starbucks locations for $2.50.
